Age 32 Job Store manager Drives Audi S3 Sportback, Honda S2000
“Neither of my cars is perfectly suited to daily life, so I’m looking for something to join them that’s practical but still stands out.
“Interior quality is important to me, but no small SUV is really known for that yet. However, the materials inside the T-cross feel really good.
“From the outside, too, there’s an air of quality about the car’s look. Most rivals are funky, while this is mature but exciting.
“I love the styling at the rear; the full-width strip isn’t actually a light, rather a reflector, but it still looks fantastic. It’s just different from other Volkswagens.
“The largest wheels available are 18in across, which is a shame; another inch or two would make a big difference to the look. It could also do with visible exhaust pipes.
“The graphics on the screens inside are really sharp, while it’s cool to have the numerous personalisation options. The [optional] 300W Beats stereo sounds surprisingly good, and the cool brand will appeal to people.
“My main worry is engine options. I’d want the 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine, rather than a little 1.0-litre unit; 113bhp just isn’t enough for me.”
Nick loves the T-cross’s chunky looks and planted stance but wishes for larger wheels
